Organic cotton - healthier soils and less water consumption


You will always find the remark "organic cotton" in my shop, because I only buy certified organic cotton for my products out of conviction. Why? For good reason! Or rather for good reasons;)

Reason 1: Less water consumption

Organic cotton requires less water than conventional cotton. Why? In the organic cultivation of cotton, collected rainwater is used more often for irrigation and better water management is carried out. Thanks to the natural crop rotation in organic farming, the soil can also store water better.

Reason 2: No pesticides

Chemical-synthetic fertilizers and plant products are prohibited in organic farming. Pest are controlled with traditional methods, e.g. by placing other plants between the cotton plants, which are even more attractive for pests. This also makes a fabric made of organic cotton more comfortable for the skin, because it is not uncommon for skin rashes and allergies to result from the fact that we wear pesticides on our skin. A little tip: Be sure to wash every piece of clothing (whether organic or not) before you wear it for the first time! In this way you wash out harmful substances beforehand and do not burden your body with them.

Reason 3: No genetic manipulation

Genetically modified plants are prohibited in organic cultivation. This can lead to the formation of resistance, loss of genetic diversity or uncontrolled spread. In addition, genetically modified seeds make farmers dependent on the companies that manufacture and sell these seeds, as they are then dependent on one type of seed.
